What You Will Learn

In today's fast paced industrial atmosphere where budgets are tight and time is a premium deciding how to solve manual material handling ergonomic problems is often done in haste. The attitude that a little improvement is better then no improvement, doing something now is better than waiting for the ideal equipment solution leads to less than desirable results. It may mitigate the ergonomic issue, but it does not fix the problem; it just lessons it impact. Comprehensive evaluation and research of all the issues will lead to complete, thorough solutions that really do "fix the problem" and are most often least expensive in the long run. Lots of pictures with examples of ergonomic problems half solved are supported by examples of things done right, whole solutions and positive results.
 

Key Takeaways

1. Learn how to look beyond the obvious to see the core problem behind the ergonomic issue.
2. Understanding that ergonomic issues in industry are production issues - they are production bottlenecks.
3. Evaluating researching and understanding a core problem requires a real effort, but the rewards are worth it
